Divisive Showtime drama The Affair has a bit to prove in its second season, and isn’t going to wait for its October premiere. Rather than airing on October 4 with Season 5 of Homeland, The Affair has released its full Season 2 premiere to YouTube over a week ahead of schedule.
The fifth season of Showtime’s Homeland offered a quick sneak peek of Carrie’s German adventures just before Comic-Con, and now we have an official target date for the next mission. Homeland Season 5 has set an October premiere by its new key art, while critical breakout The Affair will conjure up fluid Season 2 memories on the same date.
Showtime’s The Affair proved a breakout hit with critics through its first season, but will the acclaimed drama succeed or suffer a sophomore slump in Season 2? The first full trailer for the new fall season has arrived, and Pacey Joshua Jackson’s finger guns might spell a deadly end for one of our leads.
More than just our first trailer for 'Homeland' season 4 and an update on the 'Dexter' spinoff (still never, folks), Showtime's TCA presentation brought with it plenty of good news. For one, sexy Joshua Jackson-Maura Tierney-Dominic West drama 'The Affair' has its first trailer and premiere date, while the late Philip Seymour Hoffman's 'Happyish' comedy may see the light of day after all.
Cast all the 'Fringe' stars on premium cable! Just weeks after we marveled at the news that 'Fringe' star Anna Torv would take a leading role in Ryan Murphy's HBO sexuality drama 'Open,' Torv's co-star Joshua Jackson has followed suit with a scandalous role of his own in Showtime's adult drama 'The Affair.' Throw in a Starz series for John Noble, and we've got bingo!
For as much as we'll miss FOX's sci-fi cult hit 'Fringe' when the series wraps its five-year run this coming January, it doesn't hurt to think that some of TV's best actors could be free for new roles. Joshua Jackson managed to successfully shed his image as 'Dawson's Creek's' Pacey Witter, while John Noble cemented his place as one of TV's most under-awarded stars. Following 'Fringe's' end, will the cast return to work looking for new iconic roles in the 2013 pilot season? Two cast members' answers may surprise you!
